The Imitation Game Benedict Cumberbatch

Upcoming Weinstein Company release “The Imitation Game” and Albert Maysles’ doc “Iris” snagged the top audience awards at the Hamtpons Intl. Film Festival, which wrapped up its 22nd edition Oct. 13.

Director Morten Tyldum’s bio-drama “Imitation Game,” which also took home the festival’s Alfred P. Sloan film award, stars Benedict Cumberbatch as WWII codebreaker Alan Turing. “Iris,” meanwhile, centers on the fashion and interior design guru Iris Apfel.

Hamptons moviegoers gave the audience award for short film to “Feast,”  Patrick Osborne’s look at one man’s love life through the eyes of his dog.

The five-day fest screened some 130 films over the course of its 2014 run and handed out its juried awards Oct. 13.
